Hamilton remains the hottest ticket on Broadway, but the heat reportedly has come down a few degrees since the departure of Lin-Manuel Miranda and other leads from the original cast.

The Mic.com website used figures from the ticket resale search engine SeatGeek to show how demand—while still strong—has eased since the frantic days when Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs and Phillipa Soo were playing their final performances in early July.

Tickets that reached an average high “median listing price” of $1,634 on June 2, were being listed by July 19 for an average of $797—still well above the top face value of $179 for regular seats and $549 for premium seats during that period.

Those are averages. Tickets for Miranda's final performance were being offered by resellers for up to $9,998.

Face-value prices for next spring's tickets are $179-$199 for regular tickets and $849 for premium tickets.

The show remains largely sold out at the box office at any price through May 2017, and tickets are available only through reselling outlets.
